Experience the Golden Age of Sailing in Sydney

Step aboard the beautifully restored Southern Swan for a unique and unforgettable experience on Sydney Harbour. As the ship sets sail, take in breathtaking views of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and glistening waters of the harbour. The friendly crew will provide an interactive experience, allowing you to try your hand at steering the ship, hoisting the sails, or climbing the rigging for a bird's eye view of the harbour.

Tales of Sydney's Rich Maritime History

Learn about the rich maritime history of Sydney as you sail past historic landmarks, while the crew regale you with tales of the Southern Swan's own history and stories of sailors who braved the waters in years gone by. The ship's mast, made from a single piece of Douglas Fir that measures 27 meters in length, is just one of the fascinating quirks you'll discover. The ship has also been used as a training vessel for sailors and featured in movies and TV shows such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Water Rats.
